What is MOT testing?

The Ministry of transport test or MOT test is an annual car inspection carried out at DVSA certified centres. The test checks your vehicle for its safety standards and roadworthiness. The main areas included in the testing procedure are brakes, clutch, suspension, tyres and engine. Moreover, the test also ensures a clean and clear driver’s view and adequate seatbelt length as well. All of these areas play a vital role in ensuring your safety on the road.

Our experts, at BR Car Care Centre, carry out the MOT test for your car by carefully inspecting it and issue you a VT20 or “pass” MOT certificate upon clearing the test. However, in case, your vehicle is not up to the mark of MOT testing, we are also here to carry out the requisite repairs for you and offer a retesting as well.

If you deciding to get an MOT test for your car, you should become aware of some possibilities that can lead your vehicle to fail in MOT Birmingham inspection.

Significant reasons for failing the MOT test

Improper brakes: Brakes are a vital mechanism present in your car that ensures your safety on the road. You can never imagine driving a car with improper set of brakes. Therefore, MOT rules and guidelines strictly advise to check and repair your brakes before driving to a test centre.

These were some of the reasons that can make your vehicle fail its MOT inspection. In case, you decide to ignore this inspection and drive without a “PASS” certificate, you should know about the risks of driving without an MOT certificate.
